Unhappy Dissasembeling a rod?

I figured this is a basic question so id post it here im new to this forum...

Ok long story short i have a 3 piece Albright EXS, i was out for a day of smallmouth mouth fishing on one of the local river and i get to ym truck i pull apart the buttsection it come off easiy tbut then i try and pull apart the top 2 sections and they arent budgin a bit, ive used this rod about 15 times and ive ahd it for about 2 months its never happend befor with this rod or any other,

So is there any sort of tip anyone can give me to getting it apart. i dont wanna just yank on it and risk damaging the guides

Try this

I have had good luck getting stuck sections apart by carefully grasping each section as close to the ferrule as possible while holding the rod behind my knees and then pushing out with the knees while gently twisting my hands. I don't know why this works but it seems to do the job. Good luck.

Put the rod back together, cast it five or ten times, then try again. This has worked for me. The flexing of the rod may loosen the ferrules that were stuck.

Cool the ferrules down with ice. If you are near a cold river, just put the rod in the water for a while and try again. Works for me every time.

Have you tried putting it behind your knees, grasping the two pieces, and then pushing apart with your knees (as opposed to pulling apart with your hands)?

The "behind the knees" always works for me. Remember NOT TO TWIST.

Twisting can splinter the blank in no time
